Even though the Medicare B premium increase doesn't get collected if you pay through withholding from your SS benefit, don't you still pay the Medicare surcharge if your income in the applicable lookback year was high enough? Those people, as well as people subject to the surcharge in one year but not the other, should see a change in their Medicare B premium.

My income for 2009 was very much lower because I did not have to take any RMD for that year. Normally, I pay the Medicare surcharge. I am not sure what year the lower income (2009) will take effect. For that year, I should be paying the normal $96+ Medicare fee.

How many years is SS behind in calculating your income?
